This Week in #Health #Tech #Design by @CalamineDesign - Daylighting the most intriguing news, tools and resources for startups and product designers in healthcare.

It is official. Apple made an announcement on Wednesday that they are ditching the headphone jack in the iPhone 7 for headphones that can be connected by a lightning adapter or wirelessly using bluetooth. For an extra $160, you can score a pair of wireless AirPods, not included with the phone. In addition, Apple has dropped the mechanical home button, replacing it with a not-a-button home button, using a “taptic engine” that’s force sensitive. Apple has been notorious for introducing disruptive changes to their products over the last 2 decades, contributing to the company’s success. What do you think? Will you buy or will you wait another year to purchase the iPhone 8?
